With the smooth assurance of Lord Arthur himself, Derek Jacobi delivers a superb performance of eight of Oscar Wilde's stories. Jacobi brings listeners directly into the parlors or manor houses of each story. Using vocal color and tone, he effortlessly describes the scenes and the characters--not as an outside observer, but as an unseen guest, perfectly at ease with the manner of the times. With equal ease, he delivers Wilde's satire, revealing the wit that makes the author's work endure. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 98]
